Note that these injuries start right from birth, hence the name, preventing the victim from living a normal life. At Morgan and Morgan, we may be able to fight for the compensation you or a loved one deserves following a birth injury. All you need to do is fill out our free case evaluation form. A member of our legal team will review it to determine whether someone was negligent in handling the birth process.

Morgan & Morgan
What Causes Birth Injuries?
Birth injuries occur due to various reasons. However, the most notorious include medical negligence by the parties involved in the birth process. These could be doctors, nurses, or midwives; you name it.
Some of these accidents also occur due to errors during childbirth, improper use of delivery instruments, failure to monitor fetal distress, delayed or improper medical intervention, oxygen deprivation, and infections during pregnancy.
What Should I Do if My Loved One Has Suffered a Birth Injury?
The most important thing to do in such a scenario is to ensure they receive immediate medical attention and proper care. Then, and whenever possible, make sure you document the details of the injury through photographs, videos, or even writing notes.
If possible, gather any medical records related to the birth. Finally, contact Morgan and Morgan for a free case evaluation.
Can I Negotiate a Settlement With the Insurance Company Without a Birth Injury Lawyer?
You can, but it is not advisable. This is because insurance companies may try to take advantage of your lack of legal expertise or a proper understanding of what you're entitled to. When that happens, they'll try to offer lower settlements than what you truly deserve.
On the other hand, an experienced birth injury lawyer can handle negotiations on your behalf from the onset, protect your rights when dealing with insurance companies or defense attorneys, and ensure you get the best possible outcome for your case.
What Damages Can I Recover if I Win the Case?
Damages available in these kinds of cases range from ongoing medical treatment costs, therapy and rehabilitation expenses, and compensation for pain and suffering endured by the child and the family to future expenses required to address the child's needs resulting from the birth injury. It's only after having your case reviewed by an expert that you'll find out the kind of compensation you may be entitled to.
Let's Discuss Your Birth Injury Case
You'd think that after suffering a birth injury or watching a loved one go through all that pain, insurance companies will be compassionate and understanding when handling your claim. That's not always the case. These companies only care about making profits. So, no matter the severity of your injuries, they won't want to settle without a fight.
At Morgan and Morgan, we have a solid reputation for winning cases like these, and that's because we never settle for less unless it is your best offer. On top of that, we are never afraid to go to court if push comes to shove.
